The Biggest News
In August, Lanjingling started a new attempt on accessibility. Modern dance performer Mr. Bu guided visually impaired participants in practicing elementary dance motions, helping them dance systematically and express emotions with rhythm.
REGULAR WEEKEND ACTIVITIES
The 251-255th regular weekend activities were held at Century Park and Minhang Cultural Park on August 1st, 8th, 15th, 22th, and 29th, respectively.
100 Days Engagement
Professional Training and One to One Coaching of the Second 100 Days Engagement
The 100 Days Engagement program entered the second stage.
5-professional tutoring trainings and 5-one-to-one trainings were carried out this month, with topics that include effective feedbacks, sports plans, English study, and stage review. Feige, a disabled employee from Google, shared his experiences about work and study.
After every professional training session, volunteers from Apple provide individual coaching related to the topic of the training. This not only strengthens what they learn but also made them think about their career planning more seriously.
New experience of accessible activity - Modern Dance rehearsal
Every weekend from 1st August, Mr. Bu led his students to rehearse modern dance at Tank Shanghai. He introduced the concept of modern dance and taught them modern dance from primary motion. He tried to make his students feel every gesture of the body in space, discover the potential of themselves, and display beautiful body language to stimulate imagination.
Starting on the 4th Modern Dance rehearsal, the dancers started to run over whole pieces of dance work, using pieces to express their mind.
The 34th to 38th Fitness 100 accessible fitness activities were held on August 2nd, 8th, 16th, 22nd, and 30th.
Before the program, the participants of Fitness 100 had never walked into a gym or used a fitness instrument. Guided by Aidon, they learned how to use fitness instruments and gained knowledge about their weight, principle of movement, and frequency of use. They gained confidence and developed familiarity with each other, as they will be. We hope that people with visual impairment will master the correct use of fitness equipment and keep exercising independently with their assistance.
This month’s newsletter hereby ends, thank you for reading. See you next month.
beYoureyeS is a charitable activity, launched in Shanghai in January 2015, is devoted to promoting the concept of sports accessibility, making it possible for persons with visually impairments.
Everyone attending our activities calls each other Lanijngling, no matter what kind of physical condition he or she is in, and that is where our NGO’s name came from.
We believe that everyone can participate in sports freely and naturally, can enjoy the happiness, freedom and well-being derived from sports.
We organize diverse activities, encourage all walks of life to participate in sports and cross-border, and ultimately be aware of human dignity.
